MLB Trade Rumors: Recapping the Latest Talk at the All-Star Break

The MLB All-Star break provides four days of much-needed rest and relaxation during an exhausting season. Unfortunately for baseball's general managers, this vacation represents their busy season with the July 31 trade deadline looming.

Although the Oakland Athletics jumped the gun and gathered some major pitching upgrades already, most notable in-season deals don't typically occur until shortly before the door for deals closes. Important executives are not immune to procrastination, so they'll lunge to their phones as the clock reaches midnight on trading season.

Yet the anticipation is often more interesting than the actual events. If every rumor came true, David Price would be pitching for 20 teams, and every team not in last place would scoop up a mouth-watering talent to propel a postseason push.

Chatter about a star of Price's stature is hard to ignore, so saddle up for the 467th update on that front. He's not the only game in town, however, as several other players could be forced to start anew for the season's final two months.

While MLB takes a brief breather before returning to the grind, let's scour the league for the latest buzz on the trade front.
